“Katchatheevu retrieval is of no use” – Pon Radhakrishnan

(CHENNAI, LANKAPUVATH) – Lashing out at the political parties demanding the retrieval of Katchatheevu from Sri Lanka, Union Minister of State for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping, Pon Radhakrishnan, asserted that retrieving the islet will not solve the Indian fishermen issue.
